Majical Cloudz are no strangers to NYC, having played a few times here this year already. This tour, with fellow Toronto's shoegazy Moon King (whose Daniel Woodhead is a sometimes-member of his brother Airick's band Doldrums, who like Majical Cloudz, appeared on Grimes' Visions), brought them through for two shows and we caught Friday's set (9/13) at Glasslands. (They played Mercury Lounge on Saturday, 9/14.) Main man Devon Welsh is an intense frontman who likes to connect with the audience, and confessed he had a fantasy of the entire audience pogo-ing to "Mister." Most of the crowd was happy to oblige. The night started off with a candlelit set from Matthew E. Duffy and pictures from the Glasslands show are in this post.

Welsh also said these will be Majical Cloudz's last live shows for a while, so if you missed these you may have to wait a while. More pics from Glasslands below...

Didn't someone in the pit at the MSG Arcade Fire show release a Majical Cloud and we were talking about it for months!

Ah the epic Arcade Fire fart of 2010. This comment and the ones that follow still make me giggle.

Miley Cyrus to Majical clouds. I think I made a pretty good transition.
